Fixing: This page is not using a valid page layout. To correct the problem edit page settings and select a valid page layout error in SharePoint 2010

ShiPoint SharePoint Blog

I recently ran into the error below when I tried to access a Wiki Page after I migrated over a SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Wiki Site from one location to another.

This page is not using a valid page layout. To correct the problem edit page settings and select a valid page layout.

This sometimes happens after a migration of SharePoint Publishing Site Pages because the page layout URL is “hardcoded” into the  aspx pages, and if you migrated from one location to another the possiblity of that page layout not exiting or is incorrectly listed in your page will throw this error.  SharePoint is not smart enough to update this.

If you were to download a copy of that page and open it up you would see that the URL for the PublishingPageLayout is “hardcoded” with the “old” or “non existing” page layout.  Look for the <tag>:

<mso:PublishingPageLayout msdt:dt=”string”>URL to Publishing Page Layout</mso:PublishingPageLayout>

About Pratik Vyas

Hi Readers, Welcome to Pratik’s SharePoint Blog. First of all Thank you very much for taking interest and spending time to tour my Blog I am in the ocean of SharePoint since January 2008 (almost 4 years), and still I feel I have to go more deep. I am working with a well known MNC as a SharePoint Consultant. Here I used consultant because I do a little development and customization with administration. I am very much interested in Microsoft products. I have started blogging since 2008 but I can say in real manner I have started it in 2011 (as I have posted only 4-5 blogs from 2008 to 2011 J) I believe there isn’t anything impossible in SharePoint, the only thing is sometimes we have to think something off track. I have posted couple of blogs which was discovered by going some off track, we can simply say it TRICKS. Feel free to reach me in case of any issues or queries I will be more than happy to help you. Good bye and Happy Reading, Cheers !!
